BROOKLYN - Brooklyn bars could soon be banned from taking part in a pub crawl.

State Assemblyman Micah Kellner is introducing legislation that would pull the liquor license of any bar caught sponsoring or promoting one of the boozy events, which is typically organized bar hopping with discounted drinks. It would not ban the public from holding their own crawl.

The proposal still needs to be passed by both houses of the state legislature.
